  1. Story of Atlantis Part 1 - Ice Age and Deluge

    Yet ; At about 14,700 BP, there was a large pulse of meltwater, identified as Meltwater pulse 1A,[1] probably from either the Antarctic ice sheet[2] or the Laurentide ice sheet.[3] Meltwater pulse 1A produced a marine transgression that raised global sea level about 20 meters in two to five centuries and is thought to have influenced the start of the Bølling/Allerød interstadial, the major break with glacial cold in the Northern Hemisphere. Meltwater pulse 1A was followed in Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere by a renewed cooling, the Antarctic Cold Reversal, in c. 14,500 BP,[4] which lasted for two millennia — an instance of warming causing cooling.[5] The ACR brought an average cooling of perhaps 3 °C. The Younger Dryas cooling, in the Northern Hemisphere, began while the Antarctic Cold Reversal was still ongoing, and the ACR ended in the midst of the Younger Dryas.[6] This pattern of climate decoupling between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and of "southern lead, northern lag" would manifest in subsequent climate events. The cause or causes of this hemispheric decoupling, of the "lead/lag" pattern and of the specific mechanisms of the warming and cooling trends are still subjects of study and dispute among climate researchers. The specific dating and intensity of the Antarctic Cold Reversal are also under debate.[7] The onset of the Antarctic Cold Reversal was followed, after about 800 years, by an Oceanic Cold Reversal in the Southern Ocean.
  2. Similarities among religions

    I have studied Comparative Religion for years now (starting in the 70s at Sydney Uni ). One thing stands out ; many religions are similar in some areas as all people have some similarities in their psychologies. Like building pyramids all over the world in different cultures ; they are a good design of a building that doesnt fall over as easy . We all die ... we all come up with feelings, reasonings, hopes and fears. and have similar psycho-emotive reactions and hopes about it . So of course, we are going to come up with similar outcomes and beliefs about it . No big mystery really.

    How about these poles ; One pole is 'Morning Star' the other 'down here' on earth Shaman join two together with 'star pole dance' Gali Yalkarriwuy Gurruwiwi dancing Morning Star dance used in funerals to guide the spirit to rest.

    I'd love to see the version of that ^ BEFORE you edited it

    How big would ' larger than Libya and Asia put together ' be , considering we would have to go by the concepts of those times when written ? Some parts of the description sound like Cuba, except too far west. Thing is, there is no evidence of in the area closer to the east; "in front of the straights " . At a glance the Azores Plateau is the perfect candidate in location and perhaps size too ? It is in a volcanic hotspot and sitting on major plate boundaries .... but they are spreading and uplifting, not sinking, nor have sunk. And the time scale : " The islands of the archipelago were formed through volcanic and seismic activity during the Neogene Period; the first embryonic surfaces started to appear in the waters of Santa Maria during the Miocene epoch (from circa 8 million years ago). The sequence of the island formation has been generally characterized as: Santa Maria (8.12 Ma), São Miguel (4.1 Ma), Terceira (3.52 Ma), Graciosa (2.5 Ma), Flores (2.16 Ma), Faial (0.7 Ma), São Jorge (0.55 Ma), Corvo (0.7 Ma) and the youngest, Pico (0.27 Ma)." doing a 'reverse Atlantis '

    It might match but it is a geological feature , and in the wrong area. The 'patterns' near Cadiz seem man made.
  7. Nah . I am not going to give you 3 hours of my life to watch a youtube you have not explained or summarised.
  8. I dont report anyone I prefer to deal with them myself
  9. .... also
  10. Mhe ...... whatever . I prefer the traditional haka ... done in traditional way . IT IS DEATH - IT IS LIFE ! I lived with the Ngāti Tuwharetoa for a short period .... and I DONT mean at the tourist Maori village . The only thing I know of that phases these guys was when some naughty ones that poo-pooed tradition went up the mountain into a cave they where not supposed to go into. There was a mummy of a Maori chief sitting upright in there . They swear he opened his eyes and looked at them. They bolted back a mess and haven't been 'quite right' since then .... but are now VERY respectful of traditions .
  11. Now you are answering your own posts . Anywayz ... I heard this classic from a woman once ; " HIM ! ? Oh gawd ... him and his 'I want to make love to the Goddess' through me rave . F*** that I want him to f*** me ! Not be fantasising about some Goddess some man has made up ! "

  13. Story of Atlantis Part 1 - Ice Age and Deluge

    Check the work of Marija Gimbutas, her research into 'Old European' cultures (pre P.I.E. cultural 'invasion' ) indicates societies where matriarchal, egalitarian , they had little defences around their towns, seem to have little conflict . Then after the PIE speakers came into the area ( a 'warlord' culture, patriarchal, dictatorial, etc ) we see settlements establishing defences around them until eventually PIE culture takes over. Thats the only link I know of . The 'Anatolian' origin is popular nowadays. perhaps people from there went to establish Minoan culture ? There are ancient links between Greeks and Persians hinted at, way before ancient history.
  14. <sigh > .... another person 'learning about life' from computer gaming and wanting to emulate their characters. . Such is life ..... nowadays.
  15. Mhe ... dem Christian peeps, they be like sheep Me? I am more of a goaty type (wood goat actually )
  16. Unlucky ? maybe not. You detected a weakness in him, others will too. And some others, with an oppressing and violent bullying nature ( it may be hidden under the 'everyday surface' ) will be attracted to them. Experiments have been done where such types of violent offenders are sat in a position to observe people walking past them, they cant see the person even, just their back as they walk away . Then they asked the offender which of them he would follow, attack, rob and or beat up. Within this group of 'passer by' people where implanted a few previous victims, and they where the ones the offenders targeted. Often unconsciously, and sometimes just by the persona gait and body language and posture. Some people get training to correct this . It is also a principle that has been bought into more progressive self defence lessons . Back n the days when we had an active magical group going we looked at classifying types of people into a neter (or more simply ; which Egyptian God where they most like) . It was surprising - people exhibited traits to a surprising degree. 'Isian' (Isis) types often fell into the 'victim' category , particularly women that had issues about motherhood, abandonment , tragedy , etc. After a while I realised this related to mythology generally ( ie. extensions to Greek and Roman myth ), I watched one very 'Venusian / Scorpionic' woman continually have issues with 3 partners in a row ( Venus was married to Vulcan, who was lame in one leg ) who where all 'lame' in their left leg . Another Horus type had issues with left eye. IMO Thoth or Ma'at seem the safer ones to emulate. Now I see people here being caught up in the traditional stories and lessons that seem to have been laid down in this land. Anyway, my point is, yes some people do seem weak and to be 'victim about to happen' , but that can be changed, if they want change. I would never make a good opressee ...... to ' ornery '
  17. Moon Phase

    Great Moonrise last night - huge and deep orange colour. Then thin strips of cloud where in front of it making bands across the Moon - itlooked like an orange Jupiter.
  18. Since you quoted me and then put the above question under my quote ... No you can not .
  19. Story of Atlantis Part 1 - Ice Age and Deluge

    .. another thing to note is an ice age might not be as big an impediment to progress and development as we used to think. Arctic peoples and cultures (and indeed, the crossing to America 'over the top' ) seems to have come about by people adapting to the ice ages, and when the ice retreated north as the warming began, people moved north with the ice as it was the environment they functioned well in ; ice is good to travel on, it supplies extensive 'roadways', building materials, abundant food near the coast, food preservation, etc . I have even seen beautiful cutlery sets from old Arctic cultures ; polished 'silver' looking blades and modern looking handles. I thought it was a hoax, but they had a good iron supply in some places and they worked sea lion and walrus tusks and narwhal horns as 'ivory.

    Be prepared for obscure Sanskrit scholarship, archaeoastronomy, Indian 'logic' * and a lack of s current (post 1900 ) findings and research. ( * I have been talking about this subject for some time with an elderly Indian chap whose grandfather worked on the translation of the book . )
  21. Story of Atlantis Part 1 - Ice Age and Deluge

    Looking at the ice age and the long period of instability before that , we have evidence of people and settlements , in that time, virtually at the Arctic Circle in Siberia . They dont constitute a civilisation though . But it does show that climate change is regional and can have areas of great intensity OR 'refuge' . We even have this book
  22. Story of Atlantis Part 1 - Ice Age and Deluge

    Looking at the cultures and technologies and urban development of the Iberian peninsula , it is interesting to note " It is very unclear if any cultural influence originated in the Eastern Mediterranean (Cyprus?) could have sparked these civilizations. On one side the tholos does have a precedent in that area (even if not used yet as tomb) but on the other there is no material evidence of any exchange between the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, in contrast with the abundance of goods imported from Northern Europe and Africa " That could suggest an independent development or influence from elsewhere other than the eastern Med.

    The graphic is supposed to be based on various technologies detection equipment ; satellite, lower altitude photography, ground penetrating radar, etc . (see Nat Geo Vid parts 2 -4 . ) Also some stuff off the coast underwater assumed to be tsunami 'backwash' .

    Yes indeed . Some people actually think like that. here the channel 10 weatherman is such an idiot, I banned the whole channel ! Snow/ski report , idiot weatherman says , " Not much snow, but the snow machines are going full bore, creating a thick fine powdery, blanket. " < cut to snow machines > .... " And its great to see Australia doing its part to combat global warming ! "

    We need to remember these things are 'just what has been found SO FAR ' . They might be ahead of their time, or there might be missing factors. For example, some old archaeology shows good drainage and sewer systems , yet 1000s of years later, in 'advanced' civilisations , like England, they threw their crap out the widow so it stained the walls and streets . There is evidence of vast civilisation and complexes in Amazon basin from the past , yet after that and until recently , only forest dwelling hunter gatherers with rudimentary agriculture inhabited it . Hundreds of archaeological sites have been discovered alongside the rivers and tributaries of the Amazon basi For some reason, Europe is often ignored . .–Trypillia_culture and pre P.I.E. in Europe; Arkaim - Russia Also , have a look at my 'Burning down the house' thread ; and in regard to 'historical predecessors ;
